I would like some help with identifying a massive clock I picked up at a flea market. This clock has a Telechron face with (what I believe to be) a 6 day chime system built in below. I have looked through all the clocks listed on this site and elsewhere and have not had much if any luck finding anything even similar to this. Any help identifying what it is would be very much appreciated.

I've never seen a unit like that before, but the hands and dial, minus the hole for the reset signal, are from the 2F03 Kitchenguide. At least that means your unit should date no earlier than 1935.

Thanks Shipnerd that one on the right does look like a match fro the clock face.

One thing I did find after posting was this post regarding Program Machines,

If you scroll down a little bit you see similar cylinders to my clock, and these also have circuits of which mine has 6.
I'm still not sold, but that's the closest I have seen so far

I take it there is nothing legible on the plaque below the clock face?  Interesting unit, and it appears still to have some programming pins in the big cylinder on the right...
